Stephen Fry Gets Animated about Language

For a brief time in 2008, Stephen Fry, the popular British author, writer and comedian, produced a series of podcasts – called “Podgrams” – that drew on his writings, speeches and collective thoughts. (Find them on RSS and iTunes here). During one particular episode, Fry meditated on language (the English language & his own language) and a little on Barthes, Chomsky, Pinker and even Eddie Izzard. Then Matthew Rogers took that meditation and ran with it, producing a “kinetic typography animation” that artfully illustrates a six minute segment of the longer talk. Watch it above, and if you’re captivated by what Fry has to say, don’t miss his popular video, What I Wish I Had Known When I Was 18.

    good stuff. i noticed how antiemad your client is but she seems to be a lot more still. is that just because she’s just cautious? also, what’s up with her right hand is it glued to the table LOLto be honest, i consciously break EC with women, as i always believed they would get freaked out if you didn’t ever break EC and were locking eyes with them all throughout an interaction. maybe this is where i’ve been going wrong
